A major objective of this book is to fill the gap between traditional logic design principles and logic design/optimization techniques used in practice. Over the last two decades several techniques for computer-aided design and optimization of logic circuits have been developed. However, underlying theories of these techniques are inadequately covered or not covered at all in undergraduate text books. This book covers not only the “classical” material found in current text books but also selected materials that modern logic designers need to be familiar with.

For enterprises seeking to drive maximum value out of their IT infrastructures, the next frontier in virtualization is mission-critical applications – especially databases. But squeezing maximum performance out of a virtualized database instance is an art as much as a science. This indispensable start-to-finish guide brings together all the techniques, tips, and insights you’ll need. Drawing on their unsurpassed personal experience, pioneering experts Michael Corey and Jeff Szastak share comprehensive best practices, tips, and insights for deploying mission critical database servers in virtualized vSphere 5 environments. “Virtualizing SQL Server 2012 with VMware”guides you through the entire project and database lifecycle, including:
- Migrating existing SQL Server databases onto a vSphere platform
- Baselining your physical system and properly determining resource requirements for a virtualized implementation
- Architecting design, storage, memory, and networking for superior performance
- Choosing the right hypervisor
- Leveraging SQL Server 2012 Availability Groups
- Managing and monitoring virtualized database instances and resources

Simple Program Design with Student Resource Access for 6 Months: A Step-by-Step-Approach 5th Edition
This best-selling publication is designed for readers who want to solve common business challenges through programming techniques. Readers are guided to properly define the problem, divide it into modules, design a solution algorithm, and prove the algorithms correctness, before commencing any program code. By using pseudocode and modern programming techniques, the programmer can concentrate on developing a well-designed and correct solution, and thus eliminate many frustrating hours at the testing phase. This comprehensive and practical text provides thorough coverage and practical examples relating to business applications, and features a consistently structured approach when representing algorithms in hierarchy charts. The text is divided into two sections, the first covering algorithm design in the context of traditional programming and languages, and the second addressing algorithm design in the context of object-oriented programming. Coverage of these two key contexts equips students with the knowledge to solve day-to-day common business programming errors.
